The remarkable drama surrounding Queensryche continues, as the Geoff Tate edition of the band will remix its forthcoming album 'Frequency Unknown.' His label, Deadline Music/Cleopatra Records, made the decision after fans complained about the sound on the samples they released.
Given that Geoff Tate responded to being fired from Queensryche by simply going off and starting his own Queensryche, most of us expected the two camps to spend the next several years sniping at each other in the press -- and that's pretty much the way it's still going down.
The members of Queensryche that split with vocalist Geoff Tate last summer have signed a new record deal with Century Media Records, and announced their first album with vocalist Todd La Torreis on the way. Century Media is a company whose A&R representative officially supported Tate's injunction to prevent anyone from using the name Queensryche until legal issues were settled. That injunction was denied last July.
The tumultuous year for Queensryche that is 2012 is ending on a scary note. Randy Gane, who is currently playing keyboards in lead singer Geoff Tate's version of the band, suffered a heart attack on Wednesday (Dec. 26) night.
Singer Geoff Tate has certainly had a harder-than-expected road to his new solo album 'Kings & Thieves,' which releases today (Nov. 6) via InsideOut Music. The hard rock veteran began the album as a side project from his day gig as the front man in Queensryche, but by the time it was completed he had been fired from the group he helped found three decades ago.
From the sound of his new single 'Take a Bullet,' Geoff Tate isn't taking his ousting from Queensryche lying down. The new track should thrill fans of the heavier side of Tate's muse with its aggressive guitar riffing, thunderous rhythm track and in-your-face attitude.
Queensryche vocalist Geoff Tate has announced the title and release date for his long-anticipated second solo album. The singer-songwriter and front man will release 'Kings & Thieves' on Nov. 6 via InsideOut Music.
The latest episode of the ongoing Queensryche soap opera could be titled 'A Tale of Two Queensryches.' Singer Geoff Tate has announced the musicians he's chosen for an entirely new lineup of the group that he is launching, while his former band mates also continue to use the name.
